Description

At nine years old, Eugenie Clark developed an unexpected passion for sharks after a visit to the Battery Park Aquarium in New York City. At the time, sharks were seen as mindless killing machines, but Eugenie knew better and set out to prove it.

Despite many obstacles in her path, Eugenie was able to study the creatures she loved so much. From her many discoveries to the shark-related myths she dispelled, Eugenie made wide scientific contributions that led to her being nicknamed Shark Lady.

  • (5/5)
    Via beautiful illustrations, The Shark Lady by Jess Keating introduces readers young and old to Eugenie Clark, a girl with a love of sharks. Despite being old many times growing up that women couldn't be deep-sea divers or zoologists, and that she should find something appropriate to do with her life, Eugenie persisted. She went in to make numerous dives, and learn more and more about sharks and shark behaviour. Eugenie lived into her 90s, and even made a dive mere weeks before her passing. My cubs and I found this to be a very inspirational book. It has great lessons in never giving up your dreams, and what the power of persistence can achieve. Eugenie ignored all the people telling her women were rubbish for that kind of work, and went in to prove her naysayers wrong again and again. Highly recommended! A must for the shelf if any animal-loving child, and a great classroom tool. ***Many thanks to Netgalley and SOURCEBOOKS/ Jabberwocky for providing an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
